A Busy Radio Day

We had a wonderful, official send-off for our book yesterday at the Watertown Public Library.  Our book launch party felt just right, with a whole gaggle of kids sitting at our feet as we gave a short presentation to those in attendance.  It was heartwarming to see our friends and family, some of our featured ESP couples and some who absolutely qualify for the sequel to our book (although somehow talking about a second book seems a bit like bringing up the idea of a second child to a mother who has just finished labor with her first), and some new faces we're glad to meet.

Today, it was Radio Day for us!  Things started at 6:00am when we snuck out of the house to the WGBH studios (our local NPR affiliate station) to do a short 6:45 a.m. spot with Lisa Belkin on The Takeaway.  You can listen here (about 6 minutes).  A big "thank you" hug to Marc's wonderful mother for sleeping over so that she could be with M and T.  And, of course, an equal "thank you" to Lisa for sharing her weekly radio spot with us.

Then, it was on to the studios of WBNW, a local AM radio station, in the afternoon to do a longer spot with Rob Mitchell on his Pages to People book review show.  This will air this coming Saturday at 6 p.m.  We will post a link to the show once it airs - check our Events and Appearances page.  It was a pleasure to talk with Rob because he was able to give us plenty of time to delve into the book's details.

Then, we were back on the phone as guests for the second half of fatherhood expert Armin Brott's Positive Parenting show.  The air date for this show is not set yet, but we'll post the link on our Events and Appearances page when it becomes available.

And, finally, we had the pleasure of speaking with Diego Mulligan, host of The Journey Home, on KSFR-FM, Santa Fe Public Radio.  This was a live show so we should have a link to share with you soon - again on our Events and Appearances page.

Phew!  Okay, we're officially ready to sleep soundly now!
